Chromium is an open-source browsing project that has been utilized for years. It is all designed to create an enhanced experience on the web by providing helpful tools (widgets) that can be customized by the individual user.
An array of Chromium projects has been created, including the Google Chrome web browser. OneLaunch, a new Microsoft app has decided to utilize the Chromium technology so that there’s a safer and more customized option available when you want to use the internet.
The technology that goes into the browser-source project makes it possible to have a design that sits directly on the desktop as opposed to having to open a browser each and every time some basic information is needed.
How OneLaunch Offers More Information
Thanks to the Chromium source code that is utilized in the free desktop app, OneLaunch is able to provide a significant amount of information. Before you even get onto the web, the desktop integration tool can be personalized to include all sorts of information:
As long as you have an internet connection, all of this information will be updated in real-time for your convenience. Then, when you want to search for something, visit a specific website, or go shopping, you click one of the buttons that will launch the web browser and allow you to get to a specific site without having to go through multiple steps.
The Power of Widgets
If you’ve ever worked with Google Chrome, you know that there are various widgets that can be added to the upper righthand corner. These are known as extensions so that you can have more features available to you.
The widgets you choose are entirely up to you – and most of it depends on the kinds of things you do online.
Some of the features you can have access to with the right widget include:
- Language translations
- Image resizing
- Text to speech
Beyond the various “helpful” tools, you can also choose extensions that will launch shopping sites, sports websites, and even games.
How Chromium Goes Beyond a Search Bar
Many people assume that Chromium applications are similar to that of a search bar. Especially when you’re talking about how OneLaunch is a desktop extension, it is often compared to a search bar that you can have on your desktop.
Search bars are literally just that: a search bar. You type in a keyword or two and it will open up your default browser to the search engine result page based on those keywords. It simply saves you a step from having to open your browser before typing in your search criterion.
OneLaunch embraces all the safety, convenience, and customizations that Chromium has to offer. You don’t simply have a search bar. You have shortcuts for everything you could possibly need. It saves you time because you don’t have to search for information that you use all the time.
A personalized dashboard allows you to get relevant information without opening your browser. And when you do want to open your browser, you can use the various extensions and bookmarks to go to frequently visited sites faster.
Thanks to the open-source nature of Chromium, new features and extensions are being added all the time. Coders and developers share the information to ensure that everyone’s online experience is improved. It allows you to tap into the best and most updated technology every time you open up your PC.
By embracing what Chromium has to offer, you can enjoy a faster web browsing experience.
